Killer Klowns From Outer Space Getting A Special Edition 4K Blu-ray This Year

The legendary horror-comedy celebrates its 35th anniversary with a new 4L Blu-ray release.


Killer Klowns From Outer Space is exactly what its title suggests, and in case you haven't seen this ridiculous horror B-movie yet, now is the best time to do so thanks to an upcoming Blu-ray release. As part of its 35th anniversary celebrations, a new 4K Blu-ray release of the cult-classic film is dropping on May 14 with very cool steelbook case to contain all the clown carnage within.

Already discounted, a regular edition of the film will also be available on the same day, and it has a cover of the original poster art for the film. Over on Shout Factory, you can also pick limited-edition versions of the movie, and these include extras like lobby cards, enamel pins, and stickers.

Like all great horror movies, Killer Klowns From Outer Space is set in a small town that is visited by the homicidal harlequins one fateful night. The movie goes all in on its idea, and includes a circus tent spaceship, clown-themed weapons, and at least one police officer being pelted to death with pies. The creature effects are also particularly impressive, with each Killer Klown having a disturbingly unique design. It's a horror-comedy at its core--starring alien clowns who wrap people in acidic cotton candy so that they can drink them later--making for a memorable movie.

For more Blu-ray deals, you can also check out these specials on the complete Babylon 5 collection and Martin Scorsese's The Departed will be available later this month.
